OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Late Monday, the Oklahoma Supreme Court rejected a constitutional challenge to the state's new workers' compensation law.
The court ruled just one week after justices heard oral arguments in a lawsuit challenging the law.
The legislation was signed into law by Republican Gov. Mary Fallin in May.
The court rejected claims that the law contains multiple subjects in violation of the Constitution's single-subject rule that legislation address just one subject.
The ruling says all sections of the new law are inter-related and refer to the single subject of workers' compensation or the way employees may ensure protection against work-related injuries.
